It allows you to develop projects by providing a rich set of libraries for common tasks, including a simple interface and logical structure to access these libraries. The book begins with creating a "base" application, which will be used to develop all the subsequent projects in this book. Taking you through the installation of CodeIgniter and Twitter Bootstrap, you will be introduced to some common helpers and libraries. The book will then take you through many projects, developed upon the base application. The projects include a discussion forum, a photo sharing website, and an e-commerce website. Towards the end, you will have eight projects that you can develop and amend. This is an easy-to-follow guide consisting of a number of projects that enable you to develop full-featured applications at a fast pace.
